[RIP PS2] Our Favorite PS2 Games

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] We’ve spent the entire week discussing the PS2 and all of it’s magnificence.  It was a beaut. Well not really, but it was functional and had a lot of fantastic games on it.  Now though we must hold those games up to the light and judge them. We have to choose the best of the bunch, [...]

[RIP PS2] Best Worst Games!

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] The Playstation 2 was filled with amazing games that still hold up and changed the way we played some genres. On the other hand, the PS2 was also home to some really fucking shitty games. I already brought you my favorite PS2 games of all time. Well, here’s a new kind of list: The top 10 best worst games.

[RIP PS2] Hunter: The Reckoning Wayward

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] There was a time when I didn’t have fun playing games. It still happens every now and then, but when I was younger, I couldn’t be bothered to play something I didn’t enjoy a second time. Whether it was too repetitious, too overwhelming, or just another World War II shooter, I decided that my time was better spent [...]

[RIP PS2] Sony Made Art Out of Ads

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] In 1994, Sony marketing reached out to the TBWA advertising firm to begin selling their Sony Playstation.  It was a relationship that would last 13 years as they would be the main firm used for Sony’s US and European branches.  This partnership would lend to some interesting and creative ads in the Playstation era, but with [...]

[RIP PS2] Through the Meat Grinder: Silent Hill 2

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] I realized I loved games when I played Pokemon (Red) for the first time on the Gameboy. I cried because of a video game when I played Cave Story. Silent Hill 2 was my first game into the series and it marked a transition in me as a gamer. Before, I wouldn’t call myself a gamer. [...]

[RIP PS2] The PS2 is Faster than a Car

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] This week we are celebrating the anything and everything about the Playstation 2. It was an amazing console and it can only be fitting that the system gets a proper sendoff. So today I thought I would share one of my favorite segments of a little known British show called Top Gear. In this motoring show in which [...]

[RIP PS2] In Simpler Days: Kingdom Hearts

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] Who would have predicted the brilliance of infusing a Japanese role-playing game with Disney characters? Well, Squaresoft did, and the product is still one of my favorite games from the days of the PlayStation 2. Soon, an entire series would emerge only getting more complicated with every entry, but in the beginning, things were much simpler, [...]

[RIP PS2] The 10 PS2 Games You Definitely Need

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of the PS2. In fact, I think I repeat that “SNES > PS2 > N64″ in regards to my top three systems of all time at least once a week. As such, its discontinuation fills me with so much nostalgia that I can only remedy it by taking part [...]

[RIP PS2] Why the PS2 Was So Successful

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] The news that the PS2 officially ended its manufacturing hit the Twinfinite offices pretty hard last week.  Tears were shed.  It is without a doubt, the end of an era. Since our site has a certain affinity for the number 2, the PS2 has meant something a bit more.  Not only was it a great console, [...]

[RIP PS2] Welcome to the New Generation: Grand Theft Auto III

[The PS2 is now officially discontinued! We wanted to give this mighty system a proper farewell so we're dedicating an entire week to it.] In the late 90′s, I had taken a bit of a break from gaming partly due to traveling around quite a bit and partly due to being a little freaked out and intimidated by the switch to 3D. I always maintained a level of interest in what was going on however, and when I saw the [...]
